The Enchanted Walk is a must-do bucket list short-walk located near the Interpretive Centre at Cradle Mountain in Tasmania's north-west. The walk starts near the bridge crossing Pencil Pine Creek and meanders through magical, mossy forest, along a cascading creek. Keep an eye out for colourful fungi, especially during the coldest months.

You might also see pademelons and wombats ​on the edges of the forest (please don't feed or touch any animals—​for their safety and yours). A tunnel that mimics a wombat burrow has been built along the track, and is a magnet for children.​​​​​
